Sokratis Papastathopoulos (5)


#202

LOL pretty much… Mustafi was an absolute joke today… our worst player by miles on the day.


#203

Lol, I saw him dive in again and was like ‘ffs Sokratis’ but then he murdered the poor attacker :arteta:

Had to hold my hands up for that one, fair play. Was very good today.


#204

Thought he had a great match today.

Is it just me or is this narrative about him being slow a bit of a myth?


#205

Our best defender today - also, apparently he won some recent sprint contest at Arsenal (other than one player?). I think the issue is that he isn’t very quick (acceleration), but once he gets up to full speed, the guy is fast.


#206

Think he came third behind Auba and Bellerin in that order.


#207

Surprised how good he has been tbh


#208

Solid as a rock


#209

Emery on Sokratis…
We don’t know now but the first analysis is that the doctors will wait until tomorrow. It’s his knee but I’m hoping it’s not too serious.


#210

Knee? Ahhh crap… I thought it was just a blow to the thigh, which can be quite painful and difficult to run off, but generally involve treatment that can get you back out there in a week or two at most unless very severe.


#211

Fingers crossed. He has been good for us so we can’t afford to lose him.


#212

Sokratis
Right dead leg during Everton match on Sunday. Currently being assessed ahead of Wednesday’s match with Brentford.

He’s fine :slight_smile:


#213

Good. Back for Watford, then.


#214

#215

FFS Paps.

I wanna see him and Holding hold it down for us.


#216

FFS! Just hope it was precautionary. We can’t miss our best CB now.


#217

Frustrating, looks the :clown_face: Mustafi will have to continue to partner Holding in his absence.


#218

Fuck! and against Vardy!
